Multiple Faults and Errors

About two weeks ago, I encountered a problem with my car that persisted over a few days, occurring around three times. Concerned about the issue, I decided to take the car to the service center for inspection. To my dismay, the center informed me that several errors related to the driver assistance systems were logged. In order to rectify the situation, BMW's testing plan was to update the vehicle software and subsequently recalibrate the driver assistance systems.

Initially, this may not have seemed like a significant issue. However, it turned out to be much more troublesome than anticipated. The recalibration process took an astonishing three days and required driving the car for 200 miles. It was only through the expertise of the shop foreman that the driver assistance systems were eventually recalibrated.

Despite the apparent functionality of the driver assistance systems at present, the augmented reality view images have been severely affected. They appear distorted, washed out, and overexposed. It is worth mentioning that the AR system utilizes the same camera, known as KAFAS, as the driver assistance system.

Based on my experience, I would recommend adopting a wait-and-see approach to determine if the errors persist. If they do, it would be wise to take action. However, if the issues do not reoccur, it is advisable to wait and avoid unnecessary hassle.

It is my understanding that the car periodically communicates with the BMW servers to verify the functionality of the driver assistance features. This is particularly crucial for the driver assistance+ feature, as it is only available for a limited time and can be removed at the discretion of the company if necessary.

Unfortunately, BMW's servers have encountered outages in recent weeks. This has resulted in various problems with cars, making the situation even more challenging for owners like myself.

In conclusion, the multiple faults and errors I encountered with my car's driver assistance systems have been a frustrating ordeal. The lengthy recalibration process, coupled with the distorted augmented reality view images, has left me with concerns about the overall reliability of the system. It is important to be aware of any persistent errors and to stay informed about potential server outages that may affect the functionality of the driver assistance features in BMW vehicles.

We don't have Wifi or subscription services.

I was at shop last week to drop off my niece's C240. It was there only because none of my scanners could read the final two codes. While there, a BMW had issues. The shop replaced parts based on a BMW bulletin. They took it out for a test drive. It made it around the shop and stopped. Then, it bricked itself! They couldn't get it out of park! A tow truck was being called to move it a few feet back into the garage.

Yeah I think we are at a "sweet spot" with our E-53 as far as a lot of the technology goes. Even the E70 with the I-drive screen I think is a step backwards as far as reliability and serviceability goes and I think it goes down-hill from there, but then I've been told that I'm "stuck in the 80s"

A few weeks ago I lost 1/2 the screen (E70) and it shifted left when it came out of the back-up camera. Interestingly the only problem was that I could only choose the radio stations that were on the screen which I found really confusing until it came to me that the screen is not displaying the radio but controlling it, "what you see is what you get" programming because they were thinking ahead to touch screens. It wasn't serious but I felt a bit helpless. Hope that doesn't happen again! (which isn't a good thing in itself)
